Illinois Caribbean Graduates and Illinois Medical License

Hey guys,

I have been a silent reader for the past couple of months so I wanted to say tank you to all of you for all of your advice.
In addition I was hoping someone can help me out. I am graduate from a Caribbean medical school (YOG 2008). I was hoping to match in Illinois being that I have family there. The question I have pertains to Illinois license requirements. I have looked at previous posts, both here and other USMLE forums, but I have not found anything to help me answer this question. If Illinois requires us to have 4 weeks of each core rotation, but let's say we don't have the minimum required weeks, are we allowed to go back to our school and complete the necessary weeks rather than go the route of affidavits? Will the state of Illinois accept this on our AF-Med form?
Please refrain from harsh comments.
Please I'm only looking for some help.

Cheers
